drank Qu Hao Silk by The Tea Spot
3074 tasting notes

I got a sample of this & a few other black teas in my order from the Tea Spot, & it won’t last long! I drank a cup this morning, complete with re-steeps, & I don’t know how to describe it!
~ The aroma & taste remind me somewhat of a Keemun, in that there is a little of that (very light) smoke & brown sugar essence.
~ The mouth feel is ridiculously smooth & creamy, almost like I’m drinking goatmilk, but thinner, like the purest water ever.
~ It’s bold, with almost a coffee-like background, a little chocolatey, mouth watering, & did I mention ‘smooth’? It’s as smooth as silk!
Next time I get the tin…
And Sil, the answer to your question is “Yes” :D

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
